GLOCK Supports Fallen Officer Foundations at 2017 IACP ConferenceGLOCK Supports Fallen Officer Foundations at 2017 IACP Conference

GLOCK, Inc.Philadelphia, PA-( GLOCK, Inc. continues to support the families of fallen officers through the efforts of organizations such as the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Survivors Benefit Fund (DEASBF) and Concerns Of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.).

At this year’s International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference in Philidalphia, PA, GLOCK presented the Drug Enforcement Administration Survivors Benefit Fund (DEASBF) with a contribution for $30,000 and donated $50,000 to the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.).

On hand to receive the donation on behalf of the DEASBF was Chairman Richard Crock. This marked the ninth annual significant donation to the DEASBF by GLOCK, Inc. “GLOCK has a long history of supporting both the individuals who go into harm’s way and their families,” stated GLOCK National Sales Manager Bob Radecki. “We are proud to contribute to this great organization which makes such a vital impact in the communities in which we all live.”

DEA Survivors Benefit Fund Chairman Crock stated, “the fund would not exist without donors and partners like GLOCK. Currently, the Benefit Fund pays line of duty death and continuing education benefits to the families of DEA Agents and Task Force Officers killed in the line of duty.” Currently the fund finances the education of 8 children, all of whom lost their father in the line of duty.

Receiving the contribution for C.O.P.S. were Executive Director Dianne Bernhard, Director of Operations Shelly Jones, and Development Director Lauren Crisman. “The families of our fallen law enforcement heroes are supported every year by GLOCK,” said C.O.P.S. Executive Director Dianne Bernhard. “GLOCK honors these heroes by helping to ensure their sacrifice will never be forgotten, nor will their families. C.O.P.S. could not do what we do without GLOCK.”

“Organizations like C.O.P.S. provide hope and support for family members during a time of tragedy,” said Radecki. “It means a great deal to GLOCK to provide for those left behind by their loved ones.”
